Cool tour

We had Darren as a guide and we enjoyed the tour. No need for me to repeat what everyone else said. Look for a groupon to save money.

We had completed our fishing trip and were looking for something to do before heading to the airport. Chose a three hour mini bus tour with Southern Style Tours Very educational and informative with lots of laughs thrown in. Our driver was very knowledgeable, took time to explain how the levee and pumping system worked and how much of the... More

Southern Style Tours. Highlights; Speculation about whether the Corps of Engineers blew the Levees during Katrina to Flood poor districts. Seating that makes airline economy seats seem spacious. No discernible itinerary or plan to guide the tour. Fragmentary comments interspersed with musical bits apparently intended to illustrate something. A guide whose knowledge would challenge the average fourth grader. The guide... More

We recently went on a Southern style city tour and I would definately would recommend if you want a snapshot of what New Orleans has to offer. The guide was friendly and bubbly and appeared to be very knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans. We throughly enjoyed our day seeing everything from seeing the French Quarter to having a...

Greg was an amazing tour guide and made the trip very interesting. Being a NOLA native he could add perspective and stories that you wouldn't get anywhere else. Our tour really felt like 3 tours in one. We drove all over the city to see all of the culture NOLA has to offer and then spent some time in City... More

Really fun tour! They are so lively and knowledgeable, and pick you up right from your hotel. You make a stop halfway through in city park where there is a little beignet cafe, and shortly after that a cemetery stop with gorgeous elaborate tombs to photograph. Then a side stop at an area where the levee broke during Katrina, which... More

My husband and I got this tour last minute during our recent trip to New Orleans and it was a great choice! Greg was our tour guide and was the best.... A true New Orleans native that knew all the ends and outs of the city! We didn't really know what to expect but enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend... More

Southern Style Tours picks you up at your doorstep and drop you off there. Everything in between is just as easy. The small bus holds about 30 people, and Darren does a great job of narrating the tour. There are two times that we got off the bus. One at City Park where you could get something to drink or...

We had a groupon for the New Orleans 3 hour tour, so I checked Tripadvisor as I always do and saw that everyone loved it. Our party of 5 loved it too. The trip was greatly enhanced by Greg, a New Orleans native, who was extremely accommodating to everyone. We really got an insiders look at the Quarter, the Garden... More
